In Review: Carico and Krause in "The Snow Queen" at the Concertgebow Amsterdam
Known for her absolute precision and fiery coloratura, soprano Rainelle Krause is a versatile and compelling artist. She recently impressed audiences and critics alike at her debut at Houston Grand Opera in her signature role, Die Königin der Nacht in Die Zauberflöte. Her performance was praised by Texas Classical Review for its “brilliance, agility, and precision,” and The Houston Chronicle called it, “a smashing company debut.” Ms. Krause’s busy 2022- 2023 season brings several significant appearances as Die Königin der Nacht at Bergen Nasjonale Opera, Opera Orchestre Montpellier Occitanie, Staatsoper Berlin Unter den Linden, and at The Metropolitan Opera (cover).
She has also brought her in-demand Königin to Royal Danish Opera, Deutsche Opera Berlin, Theater Basel, Oper Köln, and North Carolina Opera. Other recent highlights include Oscar in Un ballo in maschera at Royal Danish Opera, the Princess in The Snow Queen at Concertgebouw Amsterdam under the baton of Kent Nagano, Tania in Al gran sole carico d'amore, and Pat Nixon in Nixon in China at The Princeton Festival.
